Hi,

From updating the new droplet console, it cause the /sbin/init to be
removed.

Now the server will not complete booting.

Is there a way to create a new init for the existing system?

thanks,

Hello,

What I could suggest here is to restore to a backup in case that you have one:

If you don’t have a backup, you could try to recover your data from the problematic Droplet with the Recovery ISO as described here:

Best,
